RMJM Hillier to become RMJM

Architectural firm RMJM Hillier today announced that the company will now operate under the name RMJM in North America. RMJM Hillier was formed in June 2007 following the merger of RMJM and Hillier Architecture. The RMJM Hillier name was used only in North America while the firm, headquartered in the UK, is still known as RMJM throughout the rest of the world. The new name also coincides with a global rebranding for RMJM including a new logo and website.

“When the merger between RMJM and Hillier took place over a year ago it was anticipated that the US offices would, in time, move to using just the RMJM name,” said Peter Morrison, RMJM Group CEO. “Reaching that point now is a real measure of the success of the merger. Since the merger, the US offices have truly become part of the RMJM Group, contributing significantly to projects across the globe. The sharing and collaboration across offices has been beneficial to all.”

RMJM was founded in the UK in 1956 by modernist architects Robert Matthew and Stirrat Johnson-Marshall. Hillier Architecture was founded in 1966 by Princeton University alumnus and faculty member J. Robert Hillier.

“The US offices have recently won work in Turkey, Libya, Dubai and China and continue to gain clients in the United States,” said Sir Fraser Morrison, CEO, Americas. “With the global reach and connections across RMJM offices worldwide it makes good business sense to use the same name on all the continents we work on. The new combined company has worked extremely well and Bob Hillier has been instrumental to the success of the merger. I want to thank him for his commitment and continued involvement in the firm.”
